What's in the Garden?

Ok, you guys! Have you started your vegetable gardening yet?

What have you gotten accomplished? I have planted a pear tree, a crabapple tree, two plum trees, and have temporarily potted my wild strawberry plants because their bed is not ready.

I got all of my potatoes in, and half of the enormous quanity of sweet onion sets I bought are in. The other half will go in this week.

What's happening in the garden world?

Spring (warm weather) has certainly sneaked up on us but it's hard to say what's in store for us through May. Right now I'm wishing I had some Lamb's quarters going and am looking forward to some fiddleheads and garlic chives. Meanwhile we have quite a few quahogs harvested this winter which we will start baking tomorrow.

Rule of thumb here is to not plant till Mother's Day. Though the weather has been scary warm, and it's very tempting.

Tomatoes!

My little town hasn't even had a chance to get broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower plants in the stores. I'm still waiting for them to arrive!

We have had a few warm days, but there is still some snow on the ground. I guess I should plant some snow peas.

You are about a month early for us here. I won't be planting, it's just an exercise in futility for me.

Do you have a "black" thumb? Why is planting an excercise in futility?
